Real Estate Sales & Purchases
Buying or selling a home can be a really exciting experience, our law office gladly helps clients with the aspects of buying or selling their property starting with a real estate agreement. A real estate agreement between a buyer and seller is governed by the general principles of contract law and of the Texas Property Code. Due to these general principals, the sale or transfer of real property is required to be in writing. After getting a written agreement, an attorney is often needed to investigate whether the title of the property is marketable for purchase and to negotiate the terms of the title insurance. Once the title issues are sorted, a deed with a proper legal description of the land must be executed, delivered and officially recorded to establish ownership of the property so it can provide notice of new ownership to subsequent purchasers, adverse possessors, etc.
